Our Story

NALEDO is a social enterprise founded by mother- daughter team Umeeda and Nareena Switlo. Being a better business for better lives means sourcing sustainably and partnering with hundreds of small-scale growers to ensure we have a positive impact from forest to fridge.

Our Vision

 We want a world where food is sourced responsibly, everyone has access to a sustainable livelihood, and our environment is thriving.

Our Mission

 We are committed to being a better business for better lives by providing delicious products that are healthy, sourced and produced sustainably, and empower the communities we work with.

Creating a Fair Supply Chain

We love working directly with our growers. We buy our wild-crafted turmeric direct from our growers ensuring they get the best price for the turmeric. 

No Agricultural Inputs! Our unique method of wild crafting means we do not require any additional agricultural inputs. Truly Turmeric is truly sustainable from forest to fridge. 

This also means our turmeric is coming straight from the heart of Belize, ensuring the flavor is as crisp and vivid as it should be. 

Empowering Communities

We Love our Growers so much that we pay them 6 x more than the average turmeric farmer.

With this extra income growers are able to invest in quality education, health care, improved nutrition, and much more building a brighter, secure future for their families and communities.

We want to take this moment and thank our family and friends, especially Umeeda’s mother and siblings: Lella, Nzeera, Mossadiq, Muneera, and Hamed for believing in us, offering advice, and being amazing cheerleaders. We are truly grateful.


Thank you for supporting us!
